Retired GB Olympians Steve Backley and Roger Black launch their 1st property book this Autumn, with all monies going to Make-A-Wish® UK. The Little Book of Property, produced in conjunction with Perform in Property, is as an easy-to-navigate, jargon-free read, to help people better understand why and how the mindset of success within sport can be adapted to success in other areas such as business and property investment. A perfect read to accompany a cuppa on the sofa or whilst on the tube, this National Read A Book Day.

According to Steve and Roger:-

“Life after sport and the potentially negative psychological impact a career end can have on professional sporting names, are widely reported topics right now. It is very difficult for most people who haven’t experienced the great highs of stardom in any given career to understand the silence post-glory and the “what now?” scenario, both financially and emotionally.

“We want to show Joe Public how investing in property at any age, particularly when you are young, if done correctly, can provide you with an ongoing passive income stream later on in life – the “what now” fears lessen when you have a solid focus and backup plan from the outset. Furthermore, sharing our own experience of life after sport and how property investment and mentoring has helped us in the here and now, some 20 years down the line, will perhaps make our story far more relatable and real to those starting out,” added the authors.

Steve and Roger concluded:-

“The most important message for readers is that all of us, Olympians and non-Olympians alike, are vulnerable. Lives can be broken or destroyed overnight through health, injury, loss or life changes. Regardless of whether you are a sprinter, a lorry driver, an entrepreneur working 24/7 or a retired teacher, bricks and mortar can help to create your own vision of success. By creating passive income streams, you can stop trading time for money and live a life that offers you more choice and freedom, as well as a Legacy for your family. We know – We are living this reality.”

The Little Book of Property by Steve Backley OBE and Roger Black MBE, created with Perform in Property (a Legacy Education Alliance brand), is available to buy from at a RRP of £7.99. All monies from the sale of this book will be donated to Make-A-Wish® UK (Charity Registration Nos. 295672/SC037479) less Amazon fees.

Steve Backley OBE and Roger Black MBE, two of Britain’s greatest Olympians, are best-known for their sporting careers within track and field. What is lesser known about Steve and Roger is their passion for property investing that started many years ago – one that has since evolved into the creation of a dedicated property training brand called Perform in Property.
